WINNERS Weekly Challenge #417 - "Silhouette"
Posted By: aaacb, 03-16-2018, 06:34 PM

Winners of Weekly Challenge #417 - "Silhouette"

This was the first weekly challenge I judged and it was a tough one. Birds seemed quite popular, with seven pictures containing birds somewhere, if I counted correctly.

sealonsf - an offering to the sun, the message is clear, if only the sun was slightly more to the center to make a stronger connection.

robjmitchell - I'm inclined to title your submission as "care-free vs family life," but there's a little too much empty space in the center.

Bruce Clark - starting the trend for bird silhouettes

SpecialK - nice sunset!

rod_grant - I like the tones a lot, but the headlight is a bit distracting because it's so far in a corner and my eyes don't have a place to settle.

Jpeachee - looks painted, and I like the little detail of the person sitting on the bench.

Vaskebjorn - the diagonal bars add to the "noir" mood.

atupdate - it would make an interesting album cover!

eva - the tilted horizon really makes this work.

mohb - an adventure-style shot, I wish it had more sky since it looks like it was a pretty one.

smf - I like the purple tones.

racingsnake - the transition from yellow to blue is beautiful.

dlneubec - seems like a great way to see a sunset.

ramseybuckeye - I like the shot and the sky has very nice colors, but the silhouettes aren't contributing enough to the image.

dwalker19 - interesting use of darker tones, the picture looks better on a dark background rather than our forum's light color.

Atindra - wonderful colors, I like the restricted color range.

charliezap - I like that all the many silhouettes have clear outlines, even though it's a busy spot.

jacamar - reminds me of drawings for a biology atlas, and the grain works well.

Hattifnatt - nice tones. All those beautiful reflections and converging lines make the picture less about the girl though.

nobody - nice minimalist composition, if only the airplane was closer.

noelcmn - I like the contrast between the sky and the ground.

StephenHampshire - steam trains and sun rays make for great pictures.

Arjay Bee - the composition and tones make me think that this sea is on another planet.

Sqideyes - interesting minimalism, the white highlights add just enough to make it work.

My vote goes to eva, with special mentions for Arjay Bee and StephenHampshire. Congrats!
